Class NK Certified Starlite Vessels
CLASS NK is an international non-profit organization that provides certification and classification services to 20% of the world’s fleet. It employs stringent processes in assessing every aspect of a ship’s classification – from vessel and machinery plans, to shipregistration, to materials and equipment, to ship safety and security systems – ensuring not just marine safety, but also protection of marine environment.
The principal work of the Society’s expert technical staff is to undertake surveys to ensure that the rules which it has developed, are applied to both newly built and existing ships in order to ensure the safety of these vessels. The rules cover not only hull structures, but also safety equipment, cargo handling gear, engines, machinery, and electrical and electronic systems among others.
Class NK is a class society that is a member of IACS, Since it is an IACS member, the vessels classed by NK are INSURABLE with P&! Clubs.
